RIP David Bowie

This morning started just like any other, except it was no ordinary morning. I got to work, checked the BBC News app on my phone while my PC booted up, and couldn’t believe it when I saw that David Bowie had died. I mean, just, how? Why??! Such a terrible thing to have happened to such a fantastically talented man. Absolute Radio played David Bowie songs from 9am – 10am, and I’d just about kept it together, until the start of this song.ย We can be heroes, just for one day. RIP David, thank you for the years of happiness and entertainment you gave us x

“Heroes”

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing,ย nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh we can be heroes, just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns shot above our headsย (over our heads)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fallย (nothing could fall)
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be heroes, just for one day

We can be heroes
We can be heroes
We can be heroes
Just for one day
